Front Yard Landscaping, Walkway, and Fencing Ideas

I have to landscape the front yard of my rancher... I hope to find ideas that aren't necessarily like the same ol' same ol'. Will also be adding a fence to the back yard, and some of it will have to be of a "pretty kind" as it will be seen. The rest will be of a "cheap" kind lol (it will be inside a lot of weedy growth) - just to keep the dog from running from the yard - chasing cats and other critters while she's out there with me!

Within the huge family of Japanese maples, there are tons of possibilities for gorgeous fall foliage color, from lacy-leaf shrubs to statuesque trees.

Amazing Color for the Fall Landscape

HOOPSI BLUE SPRUCE-Outstanding evergreen tree, generally considered the bluest form. New growth is especially bright blue. Pyramidal form that holds stiff horizontal branches with dense silvery-blue needles.

Blue star creeper is a tough ground cover that's an excellent choice for a parking strip.

Hostas in a pot: every spring they return, in the pot! Add geraniums and ivy for a fuller look. Beautiful front porch addition
